Tight end Clay Harbor was placed on injured reserve, ending the season of the No. 2 tight end who was supposed to play a bigger role in the Eagles' offense this season. Harbor suffered a back injury in last week's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Eagles have not yet made a corresponding move.

Harbor finished with 25 catches for 144 yards and two touchdowns this season. The Eagles wanted to get him more involved in the offense during training camp and the preseason, but the Eagles utilized a fullback in the gameplan more than anticipated. 

The Eagles will return Brent Celek to the lineup this week against the Washington Redskins, and they have Emil Igwenagu on the roster, too. Igweangu might also need to help at fullback if Stanley Havili is out.
